Join James Zimmerman for a discussion concerning the implications and challenges of China's policies supporting sustained economic growth and domestic consumption, including state investments in infrastructure and healthcare, policies to support indigenous innovation and home-growth intellectual property, policies to support a shift in manufacturing sectors from coastal to inland regions, and policies to promote the growth of state-owned-enterprises and public corporate ownership domestically and internationally. Zimmerman will also explore China's drive to source and exploit natural resources regionally and worldwide to continue to drive its growth, and the challenges of rising labor costs, degradation of the environment, and the pressures of stability and social welfare.
